It may seem like you're trying and trying to change things in your life but nothing's changing, nothing's moving. I am here to tell you my dear reader, that even if you don't see results right now, you are effecting change in your life.
Each small change you make will, over time, have a big impact.
If you eat at a fast food restaurant one time it's not really a big deal. But if you each fast food every day, you will gain weight. If you study a new language one time, you will not speak a new language. But if you study every day for a set time--even five minutes a day--you will learn to speak that new language. Same with exercise of course. If you exercise only one time, even for five hours, it will not have the same impact as exercising every day for 15 or 20 minutes.
The small changes you make in your life do have an impact even if you don't see it right away. So stay strong, be patient, and keep on making those little tweaks so that you are loving and living happier and healthier.
You really can do this!
Everyone needs to feel supported. The truth is, no one lives in a vacuum. No matter how "self-made" someone claims to be, success can never be achieved alone.
So... do you have a good support system? The support you need depends on what you want out of life.
If you are feeling alone, the support you need is emotional. You can use friends for support. Or, if you need more, maybe a class or coaching or counseling. If you want to get through school, you may need support in the form of tutors. If you want to get your house clean, either a course (like FlyLady!) or hiring someone could be the support you need. If you want to kick a habit that is hurting you, or if you want to adopt habits that will heal you, there are support groups for it all!
Paying for support is a great thing too! A life coach has to pay his bills too so think of it as an energy exchange.
Support can look like having a friend, coach, employee, or counselor to talk with to help you make a decision. Or it can simply and powerfully be someone who believes in you. No matter what form your support comes in, don't forget to express your gratitude!
Ask for support where you need it. Give support where you can. No one is in this world alone. Give and receive. Set yourself up for success.
Live the extraordinary life you deserve.
